2. BBQ Chicken Salad

"Gorgeous salad!" Stacy

This had me at barbeque and chicken, it's a simple but tasty and filling treat that the whole family will love, taking just 15 minutes in total including the cooking of the skinless chicken breasts. The chicken takes just 3 or 4 minutes per side and should be cooled slightly before dicing and adding to the salad.
To make the salad it's just about popping the ingredients together on top of the romaine lettuce then adding Ranch dressing and a bit of that good old BBQ sauce. A final touch is adding some tortilla strips as a bit of crunch. Yum!

4. Blackened Chicken

"Served this at a dinner party and it was a huge hit, really delicious." Amy

This is a Jamie Oliver special, slightly more ingredients than the other salads on the list but utterly yummscious. It's a quinoa and chicken salad but raised up by blackening the chicken, which helps get some real tongue-pinging flavor in there, as well as by the fresh and zesty ingredients in the salad.

Peppered beef salad with horseradish mayonnaise

5. Peppered Beef Salad With Horseradish Mayonnaise

"Wow, outstanding salad!" bbinthekitchen

Nice to get a lovely beef salad on the list and its with its peppery companion horseradish (albeit in mayonnaise form). This is supposed to be a peppery dish so add plenty of freshly ground pepper as well as sea salt to both sides of the steak before cooking to your liking and resting until the rest of the salad is ready. Next step is the horseradish mayo - just add horseradish cream and some lemon juice to your mayo. Then gently mix your salad ingredients together before slicing the steak and tossing through. Add your lovely dressing and call the family. Peppery loveliness!

6. Lemony Tortellini Bacon Salad Recipe

"Very good! A new favorite! Followed the recipe exact. Sent leftovers with my husband for lunch and forgot to include the bacon.....he didn't even notice, it's THAT good!" Luigimon

This salad calls for some frozen cheese tortellini which is just cooked off according to the directions on the packet but with broccoli florets added for the final 5 minutes. There are some delicious store bought tortellini available now that can be cooked in a couple of minutes in which case just set up a
separate pan for the broccoli and give it 5 mins. Cook off the bacon at the same time and make the dressing while you're waiting for everything to cook. Cool off the broccoli and tortellin in cold water then toss in the dressing and serve on top of salad greens. Delicious and filling.

"Great main meal salad." elizabethr

Delightful salad that can also be pepped up with Italian or Spanish ham - Prosciutto or Serrano.

10. Teriyaki Salmon on Soba Noodle Salad

"Easy to make and comes out as good as any five star restaurant meal." trishcummins

This is absolutely delicious, a real star dish.
Prep up your veg then set the noodles off cooking and rinse to cool when they're cooked (5 minutes or until soft). Get a pan medium-hot and cook the salmon skin-down for about 3 minutes then turn and cook for 1 minute. Add teriyaki sauce to the pan you've been using and cook for a minute or so to thicken it up slightly. Make a mirin dressing by whisking the mirin seasoning, lime juice, soy and oil.
Finally you just need to combine the noodles and the veg you prepped earlier and add the dressing. Pop the salmon on the noodles and add a few sesame seeds. Delicious!

11. BLT Chopped Salad

"Gorgeous salad" - Stacey

Another salad from Damn Delicious, this one's a BLT coming to you via the medium of salad with a tangy lime vinaigrette pepping things up a little.

Make the vinaigrette by whisking olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, apple cider vinegar and a couple of teaspoons of sugar. Cook some crispy bacon, dry by placing on top of some paper towels before dicing. Then bring together the romaine lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, goat cheese and the bacon you've diced before finally dressing with the zesty lime vinaigrette. Gorgeous!
